Speaker, "Layoffs, Furloughs, Reductions ... Oh My!" MRA's 2023 Employment Law Update

Speaking Engagements

M. Scott LeBlanc will present, "Layoffs, Furloughs, Reductions ... Oh My!" at MRA's 2023 Employment Law Update on February 16, 2023.

With the prospect of a recession looming over 2023 like the Wicked Witch over Munchkinland, it’s always good to be prepared for the worst. Whether your organization is considering temporary layoffs or position eliminations or is preparing for acquisition, it’s essential to know how and when employment laws can be tripped in the process. In this session, Scott LeBlanc of Husch Blackwell LLP will address the federal WARN Act and its state law equivalents, discuss how the disparate impact theory of discrimination law can make even the most straight-forward layoffs more complicated, explain how employment terminations work in mergers and acquisitions, cover the relevant considerations involved with offering severance packages in group terminations, and much more! If you’re confused about COBRA, vexed by VERPs, or ornery over OWBPA, this is the session for you.
